I can’t post my originally planned Vid of the Day…

Why not? While I can handle the distressing, frank, Coronavirus commentary, courtesy of MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, not everyone else will be able to say the same.

But, what I can do is moderate / CliffsNotes™ his content, thusly…

In defiance of all the legitimate, medical professionals’ best advice, by early April, the impatient, impetuous Donald J. Trump intends to reopen America / prematurely usher in business-as-usual. That’s his politically motivated, reckless, insane timeline designed to celebrate his NON-victory over the Coronavirus, which, at present, keeps raging on and on. Most assuredly, this is a pandemic, that will not… REPEAT… WILL NOT… by any stretch of the imagination… be contained / conquered by then.

To that end… THE END… Trump, the Grim Reaper’s protégé, wants the spectacle of packed to the rafters churches on April 12th… Easter Sunday… which means there’ll be dead bodies stacked all the way up to Heaven before THE END of the not so merry, merry month of May.

Worse yet is the power of suggestion. There are oodles of Trump supporters who WILL follow their leader… off the cliff… when they DO show up for Easter mass. Expect SRO, non-socially distanced throngs numbered in the thousands.

To wrap up this post, I’ll cut and paste a quote from MSNBC’s YouTube Channel (the very words that didn’t set up our original Vid of the Day…

“Lawrence O’Donnell explains why governors and doctors are in charge of combating the coronavirus pandemic and not listening to Donald Trump’s timeline for opening businesses again in the United States.”

Folks, it’s that commendable, flat out, gubernatorial defiance, that can and will rescue humanity from Trumpian insanity. Beyond that…

The U.S. Constitution does include the 25th Amendment, which formally outlines the transition of power if the President is unable or unfit to serve. Section IV, in particular, allows the Vice President and a majority of the Cabinet to remove the President from office.

The remaining key question…

Who amongst Trumps toadies will finally grow a pair and do his Constitutional and moral duty to remove the fake prez before he sends millions of us to an early grave?

 

 

 

 

 

Monumental Mental Illness? (Vid of the Day)

Daily Show host Trevor Noah, is to be commended for so cleverly letting this clip’s story report itself. Even so, the alarming, key issue it raises requires a frank discussion… followed by some prompt, official, orderly action. I mean, any rational person, who is earwitness to this content, is bound to wonder…

Just where, within any (more or less) English speaking sector of our vast multiverse, does any of Donald Trump’s stream of (un)consciousness make any sense at all?

Even the trio of glazed eyed, slack jawed, grinning doofuses (a.k.a. Fox & Friends’ sycophantic propagandists Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade) seem to be even more befuddled than normal… if “normal” is even the operative word, here. Donny incessantly and angrily prattles over approximately one dozen of his friends’ repeated attempts to get his crazy train / train of thought back on the tracks.

Anyway, seeing how we are all still here, it’d appear that the boot-licking approach to psychotherapy may’ve distracted him for the time being. But… what the Hell would happen were he to suffer a monumental mental melt down when they’re off duty?

Left to his own devices (an estimated 4,018 nuclear devices) the fake prez / man-child / engineer could easily choo-choo 7.7 Billion Earthlings into an apocalyptic train wreck.

Referring back to our clip… i.e., Donny’s on the air, off the cuff aside… “I know, we can keep this going all day, right? It’s easy”… should serve as a mental note to his upper echelon underlings… oh… say… remind them that, for the sake of America’s…. indeed, the entire world’s survival… it’d be just as easy to promptly dust off the U.S. Constitution’s 25th Amendment Section 4, which states…

“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”
